Oliver Needs



This is about raw emotions/expression, some of the symbols are derived from Native American symbols. Lost and past voices, current voices, future voices - the changing and developing world.

I have been painting from a young age. It is a way of expressing myself. 

I have over the years experimented with a variety of styles but more recently I have tried to use contrasting strong colours to add to the impact and energy of my painting.

I can draw and paint from life but do not always choose to. I try to look inside myself to express an experience or thoughts I have had. On top of the colours this often includes symbols, figures and words.

I hope you enjoy the works!
